Tim Scott - Liberals Fear Young Blacks Will Embrace Conservatism

The "Race Card" Does Not Work. 
  • Socialist Democrats are frightened to death of Conservative Republicans like Senator Tim Scott or Governor Susana Martinez.  Suddenly the good old Leftist stand by "race card" can't be used and the Socialists must actually address the issues.

Republican Senator Tim Scott has been subjected to criticism ever since he was first elected to county council 18 years ago.

As a black Republican, he says he didn’t fit the expectations of many black leaders. Appearing Thursday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren," Scott says the criticism hasn't changed now that he is a U.S. Senator from South Carolina, but he thinks the reason might have changed.

There is a natural tension, Scott told Van Susteren, between being a Republican and a member of the black community reports Newsmax.
The fact that a Hispanic Republican
Governor like Susana Martinez even
exists drives Leftists insane because it
takes away the Race Card.

"But what I've found is if you don't pay attention to that natural tension that you defuse it very quickly just by being yourself," he said.

Black college students often ask him why he's a Republican, Scott said, so he explains how the free enterprise system provides the best opportunities for them to succeed and reach their highest potential.

They become interested in the dialogue, Scott said. "And that's what I think is perhaps frightening to the left."
The Rev. William Barber II, President of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP, recently said the tea party is seeking out minorities to use as mouthpieces. He even called Scott a "ventriloquist dummy" for the tea party.

Scott disagreed with that characterization, saying it suggests there is monolithic thinking in the African-American community or communities steeped in poverty.

Often, minorities looking to expand their own opportunities or start businesses are told, "Don't be different. Don't think for yourself," Scott said. If they do, he added, they face criticism from leaders of their own communities.

Today, he said, it is his challenging of such thinking that has his adversaries on the left the most worried.

"Maybe that's what they're concerned about," he said, "not the melanin in my skin."
South Carolina GOP Governor Nikki Haley and Senator Tim Scott.  Haley's parents, Ajit Singh Randhawa and Raj Kaur Randhawa, are immigrants from Amritsar District, Punjab, India.  Leftist Democrats are frightened to death of Republicans like Haley and Scott because they prove the lie of "racism" that Socialists use to keep their votes in line.

COLUMBIA — Strom Thurmond’s 1964 switch to the Republican Party helped make the GOP in vogue in South Carolina, prompting white conservatives to flock to the Grand Old Party. Now, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, the state’s first African-American Senator, could help expand the party again, attracting minority voters, some conservatives say.

From the story:
If Scott wins the November contest and then again in 2016, he would become a “national symbol for conservative values in the black community, and he will begin to force a realignment” of African-American voters with the GOP, said Clemson University professor Dave Woodard, a Republican consultant.
Scott’s successes would make it easier for African-Americans who do not agree with the Democratic Party’s positions on social issues – including abortion and gay marriage – to shift to the GOP, Woodard said.
State Senate President Pro Tempore John Courson, R-Richland, said Scott’s continued presence as one of 100 U.S. senators would give him “automatic credibility” and help the GOP appeal to minorities in the state and nationally.
